'The View' Co-Host Says the 'Clintons Are A Virus'

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared at the India Today Conclave, where she once again lamented over her unexpected loss in 2016 to opponent Donald Trump.

According to Clinton, Trump ran a sexist, racist campaign that looked back. As the panel at ABC's 'The View' mulled over Clinton's comments, Meghan McCain suggested Clinton stop looking back, and that the Democratic Party move on.

Clinton slammed President Trump's 'Make America Great Again' campaign during the conference. "His whole campaign... was looking backwards," she said.

She notes Trump promised to 'solve' problems for people who don't want black people to have rights, who want women back in the kitchen, and who don't like the idea of immigrants succeeding in this country by getting high-paying jobs. "It was a symptom, but it was also a cause," she noted.

Clinton also added that part of the problem is that women who vote Republican are mainly doing so because they're trying to support their Republican husbands.

Co-host Sara Haines commented that Clinton needs to stop looking back at an election that took place two years ago. She noted that the Democratic Party is having a problem with 'messaging'.

McCain jumped in to add that Clinton ran 'one of the worst campaigns ever', saying the former candidate was trying to make her loss all about 'virtue signaling and race'.

"A lot of it was about poverty, a lot of it was about the economy, a lot of it was just this anti-Washington sentiment, this anti-establishment sentiment that we should have seen growing with the Tea Party," she explained.

"It's one thing to lose to President Obama, it's an entirely other thing to pull off losing to President Trump, and you gotta come up with a better excuse than this," she said.

Joy Behar countered with the fact that Clinton won the popular vote, and that Russians interfered with the election.

McCain says she took issue with Clinton claiming at the conference that women only voted Republican because they're following the men in their lives.

“If your messaging is that you want to go back in time, that women can't think for themselves, that our husbands, and our bosses, and our sons tell us what to do, that's quite the message going forward into midterms and [the] general election," McCain said.

Co-host Sunny Hostin, who says she can’t remember America ever being great, a study from the Institute from Social and Economic Research says that white women vote Republican to support their husbands, who are mostly white conservatives.

While this is true, the reason, according to the study, is not that white women are following any kind of orders from their husbands. Rather, the women tend to support Republican economic platform that would benefit their families.

The men are the main breadwinners in most of these households, and voting for their husband's financial well-being is the same as voting for the family's financial well-being.

Another problem with citing this study is that it uses data collected in 1991, a full generation ago. Findings may not have been as relevant in 2016.

McCain warned her Democratic co-hosts, "The Clintons are a virus on the Democratic Party; you have to move on."

Behar agreed that 'it's time for them to back off right now'. She notes that the Clintons aren't helping the party right now.
